Helping you achieve your goals as a percussionist

HISTORY

The Double Beat Percussion Scholarship was started in 2017 with a single award of $2500. This scholarship was started by a single drum corps alum who struggled to pay tour fees when he was marching, and we want to help people achieve their drum corps dreams by easing that struggle a little bit.

Past Winners

In partnership with Drum Corps International, the Double Beat Percussion Scholarship will be awarded to one member of a percussion section in a unit who will compete in the DCI Summer Tour. The winner can choose to have their award submitted to their corps or their school.
